In this paper, the authors propose dual covered broadcast with negative acknowledgements. Reliability and packet delivery ratio are of key concern in mobile ad hoc networks. This algorithm takes advantage of redundant data packets in the network to achieve high delivery ratio. The proposed algorithm achieves reliability avoiding problems in broadcasting i.e., ACK implosion and broadcast storm. Piggybacking neighbor information on data packets reduces broadcast overhead and delay as compared to double covered broadcast algorithm.
